I am getting such great feedback from my mini bar I created in my apartment redo. Thank you, I really appreciate the kind words! My next project is I am on the hunt for small stools for it, but in the meantime, I want to recover my dining chairs.

At first, I was just going to do just the seat portion, but I saw the best tutorial online for a no sew slip cover for the chairs. Now I want to do it. However it doesn’t stop there, this site I found has a do it yourself no sew cornice for the window. So my thought was to coordinate the fabrics. A quick trip to Joann’s Fabrics, just to look I did not buy. I am kind of liking this fabric combo:

This for the slip cover
This for the seat portion

It is hard to see in the photos, but those leaves match the solid fabric color wise,  and they are embroidered. I want to keep looking, these fabrics I like are pricey! I need at least 4 yards to do the slipcovers alone. So at $20 a yard, I going to keep looking.

As for the cornice, I like to do the center portion like the solid color, then trim it in a white material on the top and bottom. I have white sheers, my thought is that it will look like the white is flowing. Being a typical Libra, I will change my mind several times. Truthfully, I will know better how I want to do this when I find the right fabric I like and can afford. When I do I will post the before and after, just like I did with my mini bar.

So in the recipe post, I talked about the mini bar I made Homemade Ricotta. What did I do with that ricotta you may be asking yourself. Well, I made a rustic ricotta tart recipe with it. What is nice about a rustic tart like this is you really can make different versions of it. I had some nice Roma tomatoes and some crescent rolls and decided let’s roll with them and make a rustic tart.

Rustic Ricotta Tomato Tart With Mushrooms and Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms is a simple tart to make using crescent rolls. A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen.


  • 1 package of crescent rolls
  • 1/4 cup of pizza sauce
  • 1 cup of ricotta cheese
  • 2 teaspoons basil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Roma tomato sliced
  • 1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • 1 small onion sliced and caramelized
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste


  1. In a 8 inch pie pan, unroll the crescent rolls, and pinch the seams together. Form a crust layer in the pan. It doesn’t have to be pretty. That the thing with a “rustic” dish, it doesn’t need to be pretty. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Once you have the pie plate covered in the crescent roll dough, spread on a layer of the pizza sauce. You can make your own if you like, I personally, get a small can of tomato sauce, 2 tablespoons of tomato paste, 2 gloves minced garlic, 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, 1/4 cup of water, 1 tablespoon balsamic, and 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Mix together, bring to a boil, and use that for a basic pizza sauce, that is me, store bought out the jar is perfectly fine.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the ricotta with the egg and basil. The layer it on top the pizza sauce.
  4. Next add a layer of the caramelized onions, mushrooms, and then the tomatoes.
  5. Finally, sprinkle on the feta, and put a little fresh cracked pepper over the tart.
  6. Place the tart in the oven and bake it for about 15-20 minutes. The crescents will become a nice golden brown as it bakes.
  7. Take it out the oven and then ENJOY!
